    Hello - Managed this once before ok but having problem today on a friends TP.
    Basically stuck at this point. Oh screen print not working! Not sure why - sorry. Tried many times.

    Device is recognised but after selecting Preware from the list it just sits on connecting. Been trying for hours to no joy.

    Searched for an answer but not found one.

    In developer mode and followed everything but cannot get past connecting just efore downloading.
    Any help much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Neil.

    Is the problem connecting to the device or downloading the package from the internet?

    This is the url for the IPK:
    http://preware.net/feeds/webos-inter...1.9.14_arm.ipk

    You could try to download to the desktop and install from there.

    WOSQI 4.6.0 will connect to the feeds, but an earlier version may look for preware.org - but I'd expect an error message.

    If it's device connection, what about the firewall settings?

    Thanks ever so much for the pointer.

    It was the firewall. Don't remember that being a problem last time but it was a while ago I did it on my TP.

    The installer could see the device and when pressing the world button the list populated. Just stayed on "connecting" the whole time after opressing install.

    Downloaded the file manually from your link but same issue.

    Disabled firewall and installed straight away.

    Thanks again.

    Neil.
